My Thoughts On Songs That Were Recently Released... Are They Still Good?

So, in the last one of these I did, I said I'd do it again, and I've decided every few weeks maybe a month I'll do these, and I'll tell you if some of the songs I've reviewed recently are still worth the hype that I gave them, any release from the past two weeks will not be included as I haven't had enough time for the feeling of it being a new song to wear off! But here we go, here's part two!

First up we have Benjamin Martin's song River Lonely, now I do still think this is a beautiful song, I still think it's lovely. It hasn't been a song I've reached for a lot, but that's because the past few weeks I've been on a pretty heavy music kick, I'm mainly listening to pop-punk and hardcore currently, however, I still think it's a lovely song, I still think it's good, but at the end of the day, it's a very mood dependent song for me. I would still recommend it though, and I still stand by what I said about it! When it came out, I did have it on repeat for days! 

Ollie Hayes, Ollie released Dealing With A Broken Heart a few weeks ago, and I thought it was amazing! I loved it, I thought it was a great song. I will admit that I may have reached for this song slightly more than River Lonely, but as I said, I've been getting back into the heavier side of my music taste. I would still recommend it, but for me, I just haven't wanted to listen to as much as I did when it first came out, it's all about how long I've known the song for I think, and the older it gets the less I gravitate towards it. 

The Headspace released Evergreen a few weeks ago, and I can say that I've got so much joy out of listening to this song. I've listened to it so many times and I think it's a phenomenal song, I love it, I would still recommend it. I think it's one of the best songs that's come out recently, and since the release of Evergreen, I've found myself reaching for The Headspace's discography a lot! I still think it's an incredible song. 

The Dangerous Summer released a song called Fuck Them All a few weeks ago, and I didn't think much of it back then. I still don't think the most about it, but it has grown on me, and I've actually found myself having it stuck in my head for a while, it's definetly grown on me. It's still not my favourite thing they've put out, but it's grown on me and I think it's pretty good! I'd recommend it more now, than I did back then! 

AVAERA released Grow Up and I was super excited about the post, I was really enthusiastic about it, and I'm still super passionate about it. It's my favourite song that they've put out, I think it's insanely good and I love Blair's vocals on the track still. I would hands down still recommend this song, I think it's insanely good, and I've reached for it so much! I love it, and if you haven't heard it already, then I suggest that you go and give it a listen because it's so good! 

So, that's all I'm going to talk about in this post, in a few weeks I'll do an update on the songs that have come out recently again, and I'll try to make this a monthly thing!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
